TEA CEREMONY

aroma

Flavor is both in the drink, but also in taste buds.

Shinzo:

“My cup is small. . .”

Master:

“Drink slowly!”

1. The best way to exit the “thinking mode” is to turn to senses.
2. The senses will get you in touch with the “present”, the here-and-now.
3. Become aware of “any” existing sensation in your body.
4. Is there any part of your body which produces sensation that you are not aware of. Stay with it for few seconds and move on to detect sensations in other parts of body.
BENEFITS: You observed your own “self”, the place where miracles and tragedies of life take place. From now on they will not catch you in surprise, you see them, you are endowed with power of self-observation. Gradually calmness will surround you.
